Updates to Science Fair

We recently restructured the way that Science Fair work time happens for students in order to offer more support time! Students will not have Science Fair Wednesday classes anymore but instead will work on science fair projects in advisement class each day. This will provide 125 minutes weekly vs. 70 minutes weekly of supported work time.

We are still on track for project turn-in on December 11th! Our Science Fair Event will be on December 18th with a weather make-up date of December 19th!

In addition to advisement class, there are two other opportunities for support: Science Fair Saturday help and after school Science Fair Wednesday help! See those schedules below.
